About Me

I admit, I'm a bit of a flake where memory comes in for responding to my current pen pals. Real life likes to throw me curveballs on the daily. But I LOVE getting non-bill type stuff in the mail (who doesn't?) and I never expect to get something without sending too. Cross my heart I won't sign up to a swap that I cannot complete.

I'm new to this site, but it was recommended to me through NaNo Postcard Swap so I'm here and it looks like fun.

I only speak and read english and I am down right ignorant when it comes to using the thingy that lets you use alternate alphabets on your computer (I know it's there, and that's about it) so anything written needs to be in either english OR something I can type into google translate.

I can, and will, use google translate for other languages if the need arises BUT of course that's no guarantee that the translation will be spot on.

Favorite Music

I have an ecclectic and mood based taste in music, so no favourites. I can read music, and I play the piano - for fun, so not all that great.

Favorite Books

I read both for enjoyment and education so there's a range of books that I enjoy. The only book that has ever sat for any length of time (almost thirty years now) is The Hobbit. I have a lot of memories tied to the book and the story (no I haven't seen the movie yet) and its one I can re-read over and over and still enjoy.

Favorite Movies

Horror. I don't even care if its well done, so long as it isn't pretentious. When I say pretentious I mean doesn't present itself as Academy Award Winning and turns out to be a BXXX or worse.... So long as I know which part of the genre it falls in I'm golden.

Favorite Television

First of all, I haven't had 'TV' in a long time. SO... Netflix is my friend. What I'm watching tends to be fluid, it changes based on mood and how much time I have to sit and enjoy it, and so favourites are the ones that I can re-watch and not lose enjoyment. Firefly is one of those. MASH. Star Trek sometimes. I also think I enjoyed The Haunting of Hill House, but I'm not sure? Hoping for a second season to make up my mind. I also enjoyed Lucifer way too much and I'm glad Netflix picked it up.

Favorite Crafts

To Do: fabric, paper and string

To Watch someone else do: Wood carving.

I also enjoy trying new crafts. I've done an acrylic painting or two, I've dabbled in bead work, I was a writer and hope to get back to that as a craft...

Most of my paper crafts involve cards, envelopes and post cards that I sell at Craft Sales. I have also started to dabble in pinatas.

Curiosity

I am open to people asking me questions about anything. I may choose not to answer (religion and politics tend to just turn into fights no matter what) but so long as the question is worded respectfully I'm usually fine with it.

Asking me questions also helps me to adjust my profile.

QUESTIONS:

How do 'you people' write so small that you can fit an entire recipe and ingredients on one card?! (I need to know so I can participate in those, I have some recipes my family and I love)

Thank you camelsamba for the Zines! Now I know what they are, look like, how to fold/cut them BUT these aren't done by hand. What programs do you guys use to make them? Have decided to argue with Word until someone tells me what they use. :)

Comment: Thank you so much! I often have this same problem of thinking and planning and not doing until I have run out of time and have to do it in a hurry which makes me make mistakes. Have a great day! Hugs, Diane
Response: We are our own worst enemy eh? Keep on keeping on! Pre-emptive cuss ups for the win! I am now fixated on saying cuss instead of cussing...

Comment: Lol I enjoyed reading your answer. Oh it reminds me of the new hires I have to train at work.
Response: Glad this comment was worth a grin at least! New Hires tend to bring less of a grin and more of a grimace in my experience. But we were all there once...

Comment: Thank you very much for showing me your zoopark. Your cats are so sweet, although I have not been able to see the ISIS, only their eyes :) And the fish are very unusual in my opinion. But also interesting. And they do not lose lint like cats! :))) Greetings to all your family and pets:)
Response: yeh I've been trying for over a week. I don't know what she's thinking but if I point the phone or the camera at her she hides again. I'll get her eventually and then I can keep a pic of her on my computer.

Comment: Thank you for sharing! Chase is so pretty. I have never heard of a cat attacking candles before, so that is a first! I love the names of your fish.
